What are you afraid of? Spiders? Snakes? The Dark? We all have our fears, but when it comes to fitness, you’d be surprised just how many people are truly and honestly afraid. Whether their fear stems from a bad experience in the past or a perception based
What is Your Fitness Fear?
Getting Injured or Hurt
One of the main fears I hear over and over again as a personal trainer is that they are afraid of getting injured or hurt. I get it. Gym equipment can be quite intimidating, especially if you do not know how to properly use it. Many people are afraid that they will get injured if they begin to work out.
As a personal trainer, one of my biggest concerns is your safety. That’s why any experienced personal trainer can modify workouts and instructs on proper form so that you do not injure or hurt yourself while performing various exercises.
Low Self Esteem
Many people are afraid of getting into the gym or working out due to low self-esteem. They see the images on social media or online of these overly-buff people working out in their perfectly tanned bodies and you get intimidated. Not everyone who goes to the gym is a bodybuilder. In fact, most people are just your average everyday person looking to become a better version of themselves. Don’t let someone else’s best deter you from becoming your best.
That You Can
Often many people are afraid of what they can’t do. But the truth is, there are more people that are afraid of what they can do. They’re afraid they’ll look too good. They’re afraid they’ll be too strong. They’re just afraid of what will happen when they reach their goals.
This is something you definitely should not be afraid of. Yes, your body is going to change and it will be different. Your spirit will also change, and it’s going to be a journey that will be well worth it!
